A lot of customers ask me for roll wrap. I do stock rolls and they are fabulous. Unfortunately with postage prices being what they are it isn’t cost effective to offer it for sale on my website as the postage would cost more than the wrap itself.
However, if you live in the Western Isles or round the Black Isle/Inverness area then I can probably arrange delivery for free.
With that in mind here is some of the roll wrap I have. If you’d like some please get in touch and I will do my best to sort you out.
It’s all fabulous, gorgeously designed and quality wrap that won’t rip or tear easily when wrapping.
If you see something you like please contact me to arrange delivery, or email me at email@example.com.
Sometimes when you have young children it can be hard to find Halloween decor that’s not too gory or scary. So I’ve done the hard work for you and picked out the best costume ideas, props, decorations and activities suitable for all ages. You’ll find lots this Halloween on Etsy, and quite a few treats for yourself too. They have their own suggestions on their Halloween page but here are my favourites.
Monsters for your Mantlepiece
When it comes to Halloween decor you can go cute or gory. Maybe it’s because we have small people in our house that I like Halloween to be fun and decorations to be tasteful but not too ghoulish. These mantlepiece decorations are so simply spooky but stylish too.
If you want to have a go at making your own, or need to choose your colours to fit with your theme then these craft shapes would be a good place to start.
There are three really great things about photo booths. First they don’t cost much to do. Second they can be enjoyed by all ages and lastly they mean lots of photos and fun memories of your party or get together.
These props will provide plenty of opportunity to be creative with your snaps. And if someone comes to your party and has ‘forgotten’ to dress up (you know there’s always someone) then you can oblige. After all we wouldn’t want them to feel left out would we?!
Sometimes the simplest decorations are the best and these pompoms were too cute to ignore as well as being very reasonably priced.
If you’re more of a fabric person than a yarn lover then you will love this Halloween banner.
I hope you’ve found this useful in your Halloween preparations. Please let me know in the comments if you did and if you see something on Etsy that you think I should include here please let me know in the comments.
I’ve been busy making Christmas cakes. As some of them are for others, like teacher thank you presents, they need to go in nice Christmas Cake Boxes.
Here are my favourite Christmas cake boxes that I use for small gifts.
I find all of these just perfect for small gifts, not just at Christmas but obviously at Christmas they get used more.
Firstly there are the Cube boxes
If you need something to put a small cake in then these are great. Approximately 10cm cubed they will hold a small cake or a large decorated muffin.
I made these Christmas cakes in a large muffin tin (it has 6 holes in the tin not 12 so you can imagine the kind of size). My mum tells me she used to make Christmas cakes with her school pupils in baked bean tins, so I think these boxes would work for those too.
By the way – do you like my snowman decoration on the cake?
Secondly there are the mini boxes
These smaller boxes will hold a standard cupcake or muffin. They will also hold sweets, chocolates, homemade biscuits etc.
oooh – or a surprise!
The base of these is about 6cm square and there are 5 in a pack.
I’ve also used these mini boxes for ‘party bags’ at my children’s birthday parties. I discovered pretty early on that when children get party bags all they were really interested in was the sweets! So not wanting to give out a huge bag of sweets I tried these on our guests. They went down a treat as they looked so different it was more like giving out a present to unwrap and I think the children liked that more.
So if you’re in need of Christmas Cake Boxes for those small homemade gifts then look no further.
PS I’d love to know what you put in yours. Do comment and share with us, or post a picture on my Facebook page.
…you’d better be prepared for a party as it’s Teddy Bear’s Picnic Day! So I thought I’d share some ideas for a Teddy Bear’s Picnic. First of all you’ll need invitations, these by Laura Stone are perfect! Secondly you’ll need food and I’ve put some ideas on my Pinterest site but anything with honey is obviously a must! I’ve put a couple of ideas for activities and games on there too, love the idea of pin the bowtie on the teddy! Finally, you’ll need to send a thank you card, and this by Paula Bowles is probably my favourite, just because it’s so cute!
